We had a December reception at Dobbin St, Brooklyn and DJ Kernsy (Zach) was amazing!! I think we literally had all 120 guests on the dance floor at some point during the night. Zach was incredibly easy to work with - he knew the venue extremely well and he has a ton of experience DJ'ing and MC'ing these types of events. Because we had a mix cultural marriage (Indian, Italian, Irish), Zach was able to curate a cocktail, dinner and dancing music program including everything from Indian folk-to-blues-to-90s hip-hop-to-Radiohead. He was also able to easily accommodate a last-minute program change involving me (hubby) to play my wifey her favorite Radiohead song on the guitar accompanied with a singer (guest) and bassist (guest) on the fly with the sound being incredible. Weeks leading up to the reception, we provided Zach with a small list of genres, songs, artists that would make sense for us and for our diverse crowd throughout the night. He NAILED it and completely extracted from our brains what we wanted the sound to be like including his own creativity. He's original, creative and allows couples to curate entertainment programs that don't seem canned like every other reception program. Zach helped make our evening special, original and that's all we could have asked for.
Business-side: it could not have gone any smoother. Zach is clearly experienced and comes prepared with a standard contract, insurance (for venues) and a fee-for-service that is extremely fair. Folks would be crazy not have DJ Kernsy at the top of their list. Clearly one of the best.

Nothing but jams
Zach was awesome at our wedding.
He was a pleasure to work with and rocked an awesome party. Dealing with him was super easy. I had nightmares of having a guy in a gold vest play the electric slide at my wedding and that is not Zach’s deal at all. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

The dance floor was packed!
Zach was fantastic! He was so flexible – I sent most of my music requests the week of my wedding, and he incorporated them into his playlist with absolutely no warning. The volume of the music was well-controlled, the announcements were brief, and he pronounced everyone’s name correctly (much appreciated!). His song choices were excellent, and he kept the energy level high -- the dance floor was packed throughout the night! He is truly an excellent DJ, and I highly recommend him!
